Obviously, this goat needs no directions on how to find food! On the way back from Golpapur, on the Bay of Bengal, we arrived in the city of Bhubaneswar, which is where Raj’s house is located. When we got there, the driver stopped several times to ask people for directions on how to get to the hotel. He was speaking in his native language of Odia, but it was clear that he was asking and receiving directions. He’d stop at…

Raj: I’m sorry. I know that they your reception was supposed to be about you, but … the moves, man! The moves! 😀 The lights were pulsing, the beat pounding, feet moving, hands waving, invitations to dance by young and old, lots of fun. Little did I know that my super smooth moves would elevate me to that of celebrity … but I was soon to find out … One of the most fun parts of an Indian wedding, to…

It’s like some sick twisted video game that has no rules. You get one life, no rule book, and have to hope that you make it to your destination. He laughed and said that it was the best description that he’d…

Waiting for the fog to clear

Probably one of the most iconic images of India that I’ve seen is the Taj Mahal. My first stop in India was Agra, home to that iconic building. My time in Agra was very short, only a morning. Then, I would head to Jaipur. My guide told me that we could go whenever I wanted to, but that usually in the winter months, the Taj was shrouded in fog as its placement is right on a river. I selected 9:00…

Took-Took

I’ll start this post with a bit of commentary from the 1988 US Vice-Presidential debates: Quayle: Three times that I’ve had this question — and I will try to answer it again for you, as clearly as I can, because the question you’re asking is, “What kind of qualifications does Dan Quayle have to be president,” “What kind of qualifications do I have,” and “What would I do in this kind of a situation?” And what would I do in…
